What if someday....

Breeders created fat little round bettas that were kind of like fancy goldfish....They would probably be the size of a garbanzo bean hahaha....You know, I don't think I even want that to happen....XD

It is most likely not a new breed, but a Betta with genetic swim bladder problems, there is a very slim chance that an actual breeder will process with this type of line, most knoledgable breeders wont, as the fish will be very inactive, prone to sickness, by poorly, hard to breed further, etc. knowledgable breeders usually know not to sell these types, and cull them. If they don't cull them. They will send them to a happy home.
